After nearly 4 months of patiently looking, scanning the used car websites, crunching the numbers we finally picked up our first 80 Series Landcruiser this past Thursday.
On to the details.
It’s a 1997 Toyota HZJ80R Landcruiser in DX trim. Also known as poverty pack!
1HZ 4.2L 6 Cylinder naturally aspirated diesel engine
H150F, 5 speed manual gearbox.
HF1A part time transfer case with a 1:1 ratio in high rage and 2.488:1 ratio in low range.
Differential ratio is 4.11:1.
Making the final crawl ratio is 46.3 if my math is correct!
Factory 45L sub tank (total of 140L of fuel)
164 800 Kms on the clock, two owners since new with excellent service history.
The aftermarket accessories include:
Dual battery system
Scrub rails and side steps
Hayman Reece tow bar
40 mm raised suspension
Roller drawer system
TJM winch compatible bull bar
GME TX-4200 UHF radio (CB in North America)
Custom sheep skin seat covers, front.
Because the existing tires failed to pass safety inspection, it now rolls around on a new set of these…
Items that need to be addressed immediately:
Put tools and recovery gear in drawer system
Diff breather extension mod
Matching spare, current one is 7.5R16
Prepare a comprehensive spares kit
On board air compressor for tire inflation and locker operation down the road.
Replace OEM steering damper
Longer term changes once we use the vehicle on a few trips and figure out what’s more important. Also known as the wish list!
Awning and side panels
Lockers both ends
Roof Top Tent or Swagg
Replacement rear bar with swing outs
Aux. long range tank
The possibilities are just endless!
